Terrible service, would not accommodate a handicapped child with epilepsy.

04/08/2019 Zachary A, Grand Junction, Colorado

This was the WORST Best Western my family has ever stayed at. We booked a handicapped-accessible room for 14-year-old son who is wheelchair-bound and suffers up to 100 seizures a day. Needless to say,... more

Owner Response
HotelGuySanDiego, Owner at Best Western Lamplighter Inn & Suites at SDSU, responded to this review
I am very sorry for your experience with us. The day I spoke with you we were making the big move from our temporary lobby into our new lobby. My intent was to have the certificates sent to you as soon as I got back to my office, but the day was so hectic that, I’m embarrassed to say, I forgot. I feel terrible for this. The fact that you tried to reach us on multiple occasions but was unable to is not something we are taking lightly; we are looking into this matter with our staff. I have been in the hospitality business for many years. My grandfather actually started our small business over 40 years ago. I completely understand the importance of providing outstanding customer service to each and every one of our guests. I am terribly sorry that we failed you and your family in this instance. We are always looking for ways to improve our hotel. We just finished construction of our new lobby and breakfast room and have finally moved into our new building! It has been a long and arduous process. During construction there were some inconveniences, such as, having to provide a limited breakfast due to health permit regulations. We are now serving our usual complimentary deluxe continental breakfast and are getting ready to add additional food items to our menu. Many things went wrong with your reservation. This is not typical of us, and we all feel terrible for your experience. Please accept our apology. You are a valued guest and we do hope you will give us another opportunity to serve you. Sincerely, John Lyon Proud Owner, Best Western Lamplighter Inn & Suites
